Charged with Possession for Sale in Florida?
Possession for sale is a more serious form of drug possession that involves having controlled substances and other items in one's possession that indicate the defendant's intent to sell or distribute. As
drug distribution is a more serious criminal offense than simple drug possession, possession for sale may result in enhanced charges and penalties if the defendant is convicted.
There are various factors that may play an important role in a criminal case involving drug possession with the intent to sell or distribute, including:
- The presence of drug paraphernalia
- Any statements that the defendant said regarding the drugs and his or her intent to sell these
- Where the drugs were in relation to drug paraphernalia and other items
- The presence of large amounts of cash, a customer log, pager, or PDA
- The quantity of drugs involved
- The manner in which the drugs were packaged, stored or presented
Although the prosecuting attorney may have worked with law enforcement to bring a great deal of physical evidence against you, as well as potential witness testimony, there are always options your attorney can explore in building an effective defense strategy on your behalf nonetheless. For example, the drugs or drug paraphernalia may have been discovered by law enforcement in the absence of a valid search warrant or probable cause. This may be grounds to have that evidence dismissed, under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, protecting you against unreasonable search and seizure.
